Quirky Characters, Roadside Oddities & Other Offbeat StuffeBook - 2013 | Third edition.
Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Old Dominion has to offer! Whether you’re a born-and-raised Virginian, a recent transplant, or just passing through, Virginia Curiosities will have you laughing out loud as Sharon Cavileer takes you on a rollicking tour of the strangest sides of the Old Dominion State. Meet Gary Stiteler, owner of Glen’s Fair Price Store—a curiosity shop that has been open since 1941. Ask him how to get a Confederate uniform or a replica of the famous ball gown worn in Gone with the Wind. Visit the First Peanut Museum in the U.S.A. and learn about the history of the peanut, from antique planters and cultivators to peanut scoopers, all thanks to the Waverly Women’s Club. Relive the glory of the old south at Berry Hill: Wander around the stately white home, now a resort, and view the free-standing mahogany horseshoe staircase acclaimed as one of the finest stairs in the country.
